Can install paid Shopify apps directly on my development store?

Asked 2 years ago

Hello, I've created a development store for testing orders andShopify apps, and reviewing the workflow of a seller's store. However, so far I have only had the need to test free apps . Today, I came across an app that would be perfect for the seller, however, it's a paid app. Would it still be possible for me to install it and do a test run in the developmental store before having the Shopify seller pay for it

There are two basic types of the app; listed and unlisted. Listed are the ones that you can install directly from the Shopify store. In contrast, the apps that do not appear in Shopify store searches or categories are unlisted. To Install paid Shopify apps, you have to switch your development store to Shopify paid package. There is a limit of 10 custom apps that can install on one development store.
